As the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex continues to rapidly expand, the advantages of life near this urban zone have become widely known. In addition to its strong economy across numerous industries, the area provides ample options for dining, entertainment, nightlife and culture. As newcomers continue to explore popular areas in Fort Worth, many have decided to find a home for rent in the town of White Settlement, Texas. Named to distinguish itself from the nearby Native American settlement in its early days, the community overwhelming voted to keep the name in a 2005 decision. Today, the town is home to about 16,000 residents and rentals are available to those who are interested in adding to that tally.
A house for rent in White Settlement places renters about 10 miles northwest downtown Fort Worth, putting them in a comfortable suburban community, close to both the cultural center of the city, as well as North Texas' more rustic and tranquil areas. Lake Worth sits just north of White Settlement, inviting boating, fishing and water sports. The legend of the "Lake Worth Monster," part goat, part fish, part man, still exists after numerous reported sightings in the summer of 1969. Regardless of monsters and fables, this area presents as an ideal place for recreation and relaxation.
Those with rentals in the town of White Settlement will find landmarks like the Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base, the Ridgmar Town Square Shopping Center and Ridgmar Farmers' Market, as well as several popular parks. Central Park, which is undergoing renovations as of the summer of 2012, includes a skate park, duck pond and several playing fields where town-sponsored youth leagues play their games. Veterans Park, another recreation option, is comprised of a volleyball court, horseshoe pits and softball fields for adult leagues.
